How do I get my 1090 from my 2018 and 2019 tax return

You have to sign onto your  online account using the exact same User ID you used to create the online account.


Close all TurboTax windows on your web browser (including this one).  Copy and paste the account recovery website link onto a new web browser window and run the tool.

Use this TurboTax account recovery website to get a list of all the User ID's for an email address.  Run the tool against any email addresses you may have used -


If none of the user ID's received will access your  account, then use the option shown in blue on the account recovery website, "Try something else"


If you used the desktop CD/Download editions installed on your computer, the only copy of your tax data file and any PDF's will be on the computer where the return was created.  TurboTax does not store online any returns completed using the desktop editions.


To access your current or prior year tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account -


Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF) or Download .tax file

What do you need?  What kind of 1099?  Turbo Tax doesn't have copies of your 1099 or W2 forms.  You would need to get another copy from the sender or employer.

Do you mean 1099's?  


There are over a dozen kinds of 1099's.  A 1099Misc is typically issued by an individual or business for whom you performed work as an independent contractor, so seek a copy from them if you did not save yours.  Many of the other types of 1099's are issued by banks, brokerages and other financial institutions from which you can seek copies.
